6:34am
income tax who consider themselves victims. and they say had the president went ahead and mentioned that, that could have helped basically distinguish himself from romney as someone who better understands the middle class and the problems they are going through. >> they both hit the campaign trail again. a lot of work to do. 36 days before the big election. bigad shaban, live in denver, tough. even people in heavily democratic california say romney won the debate. a cbs 5-surveyusa poll of adults in the golden state said 48% said romney won compared with 34% for president obama. 18% felt there was november clear winner. starting today -- there was no clear winner. starting today they weigh in on issues on an exclusive presidential forum on cbssf.com, today's issue, the economy. i'm going to buy everyone parkas because the ac in the studio is flying. it's chilly. >> it's chilly inside. it should be a toss-up to see whether it's chillier inside or

[ male announcer ] stop & go traffic. you can't always avoid it. but you can always do something nice for your car. chevron with techron. care for your car. evening's debate performancs the shot-in-the- arm mitt ry lump in the some say yesterday's evening debate performance was a shot in the arm for mitt romney and a shot in the arm that he needed to end a bit of a slump that he has been in lately. >> "san francisco examiner" columnist melissa griffin was among those covering the debate and joins us live from denver. good morning, melissa. >> good morning. >> so we watched the debate
6:55am
last night my family ate dinner around the tv last night which we never do. let's share your take on some of the moments that maybe are considered memorable. >> you can't deny that the fight between mitt romney and the moderatedder over the timing and how the debate was going to flow was something that even in the media filing room we all sort of physically react to after a while. it got a little uncomfortable. i understand we have a clip of one of the moments. >> yeah. let's take a look. >> the president began this segment so i think i get the last word. so i'm going to take it. >> you get the first word in the next segment. [overlapping speakers] >> your 10 minutes is up, sir. >> i had five seconds before you interrupted me. well, there you go. the format kind of got lost and the moderator got buried a number of times. they kind of did what they wanted to do. but there was a lot said, don't you think? >> reporter: oh, absolutely! well, for mitt romney, what he
6:56am
was saying were the same things he has been saying for a year, which makes the fact that barack obama didn't have much in the way of comeback for the things that mitt romney was saying, that much more "interesting." basically, there was the famous big bird line where mitt romney said he would defund public broadcasting. he has been saying that since november of 2011 saying he is going to defund the national endowment for the arts. they fell flat and obama didn't have a response. also, mitt romney's critique of obamacare, the $716 billion cuts to medicare. these are things that obama really didn't have a response for. and again he should have because mitt romney's been telegraphing this for the past year. it was a big disappointment for people watching. >> and in fact, melissa, the president even said, well, i -- i'll adopt that term obamacare. he agreed with it. >> reporter: he seems to really enjoy it. it's there for better or worse
6:57am
anyway. i can tell you inside the the media room, there were lots of interesting things happening. again lots of international media there people from china, france, germany, an exciting place to be last night. i think obama though knew that something was off. his final two-minute speech was really deflated really flatfooted and i spoke to several security guards right after the debate who told me that obama jetted out very, very quickly after the debate was over even more quickly than he was scheduled to actually. so maybe it was because he was eager to get on with his anniversary celebration but he clearly did not wish to be in the debate hall for one second longer than he had to be last night. >> i noticed that the romneys were still on stage and the crowd was cheering and the president was gone already. melissa griffin, live in denver, thank you. >> we'll see what the independent voters have to say. that's the big question. developing news in san jose where police have two homicides to investigate from a violent
6:58am
night. a man was shot to death in east san jose about 12:30 this morning. a group was garbed outside a home when some people with rags on their faces opened fire. there was another murder on south second street in downtown san jose. police were called about a fight there. they found a man unconscious at the time. got little to the hospital. he didn't make it. no word on suspects or motive. a new roman catholic archbishop of san francisco will be installed today. 2,000 people will witness the ceremony for salvatore cordileone at st. mary's cathedral. but protestors are expected. that's because the bishop has a reputation as a fierce defender of the church's opposition of same-sex marriage. gay activists say they want their voices to be heard. 6:58. a last check of traffic and weather. after three beautiful days, times are changing. >> times are changing ready for cooler weather. better sleeping weather at night and i have been getting bit by mosquitos earlier this week, too. so hopefully all that will go
6:59am
away. all right. temperatures going to feel a lot more like fall and they are already a little cooler out the door. 50s and low 60s right now. but by this afternoon we'll warm upper 60s mainly around the coast and bay 70s to very low 80s in some inland spots. cooler still by the weekend and then a slight chance of rain by monday. here's gianna. >> let's take you live now to santa clara where we're monitoring this accident. a vehicle down the embankment north 101 the great america parkway off-ramp is closed until further notice. one person injured in the accident. on the maps it's doing a number on the freeways northbound 101 slow and go another accident oakland that has been cleared out of the roadway but again still busy and busy at the bay bridge, as well. >> thank you. we are going to leave you with the sights and sounds of the oakland as beating the rangers. bring on the tigers. have a great day. >> flyball... center field... coco...
